One of the most intriguing herbs that has come to light in western medicine is the compound called “forskolin” which is derived from the plant Plectranthus Barbatus (Coleus Forskohlii) or “Indian Coleus.” It is related to the mint family and has been used for centuries in Nepal, India and Thailand as a powerful vasodilator, meaning it increases blood flow. This increased blood flow has been proved very effective in both boosting metabolism and promoting a breakdown of stored fats, meaning that using forskolin for weight loss actually shows results, unlike many other “miracle cures.” Nutritional manufacturer BioGanix has recently introduced a maximum-strength blend of forskolin, standardized to 20% potency, and is making it available through its Amazon store for an amazing 60% off — limited time only.
Pure forskolin has long been known to help with a range of ailments due to its dual properties of vasodilation and smooth muscle relaxation. Painful menstrual cramps can be alleviated with forskolin. Its most recognized benefit is in weight loss which has made it especially popular with male bodybuilders due to its effect of increasing lean mass, bone mass and testosterone. In India, it is often used as a first response to heart failure, where forskolin is injected intravenously. Coleus forskolin benefits even asthma, when inhaled.
The question “where can I buy forskolin” is almost too easy to answer — it’s everywhere! But consumers need to be very aware that not all forskolin supplements are produced the same. The BioGanix extract is standardized to 20% maximum potency, at a 250mg dosage. It is 100% all natural, gluten free and contains no GMOs. In fact, BioGanix is so confident that they offer a money-back guarantee if there is no weight loss.
As with all medications, patients are should consult with their physician before starting any new treatment. The standard dose for BioGanix’s maximum strength foskolin is one 250mg capsule per day, but with a physician’s approval, it may be increased to two capsules per day. Particular caution must be taken if any other blood pressure medications such as beta-blockers, clonidine, or hydralazine are used. Also at risk are blood-thinning drugs such as warfarin (Coumadin), heparin , clopidogrel (Plavix), ticlopidine (Ticlid), or pentoxifylline (Trental).
With its non-interactive qualities, forskolin is often recommended as a companion supplement to be used with Garcinia Cambogia, Green Coffee Bean Extract, CLA 1250, Raspberry Ketones, Yacon Syrup and Hydroxycut.
